When it comes to accessing your self storage unit, not all facilities are created equal. During your hunt for storage, be sure to inquire about the following:
Storage Type (Drive Up, Indoor or Outdoor Lot): Where are the storage units located on the property? Are they drive up units, much like a one car garage that you can pull your car up to? Indoor storage units within the facility? Outdoor storage spaces that are similar to a parking lot?
Hours: What are the hours of the storage facility? Is it open on nights and weekends? Do you have 24 hour access to your unit or access only during set times of the day?
18-Wheeler Access: If you have a moving company unloading your storage items, can the storage facility accommodate their 18-wheeler (if that’s what their driving)?
Now that it’s heating up you are going to want easy access to all your gear for the summer such as: boats, fishing poles, swimming gear, inner tubes and more, which means you’re going to need more room in your home or garage. Your #storageunit is a great place to store gear you won’t use during the summer months to create extra space and declutter your home.
To get started, create a list of things you won’t use and start organizing them into one place where they can be easily packed and brought to your storage unit. Having a hard time coming up with items? Here’s a list of common items to get you started.
-Winter Gear or Clothing
-Snowboards or Skis

Here’s a quick run down on the types of small businesses that could utilize a business self storage unit:
Retail - A storage unit is a great place to store stock for your online or brick and mortar retail shop.
Pharmaceutical - Sales reps for pharmaceutical companies sometimes use self storage for receiving shipments and storing inventory of marketing materials and drug samples.
Medical or Law Offices - Doctor’s offices and law offices are required to keep voluminous amounts of documents. A well organized, climate controlled storage unit can be a good place to store files.
